To obtain the data for his book Dr. Fulton studied 12 normal, 5 "nearly normal," and 42 pathological hearts, 25 of which had coronary artery disease. The arteries of each heart were injected with radio-opaque material, then X rays made and photographed specially for stereoscopic viewing. After this the atria were removed and a transverse slice made through the ventricles, leaving a basal and apical portion in addition to the slice. Each of these was also X rayed. Finally the main coronary arteries were removed for a distance of several centimeters and X rayed intact and also after subserial sectioning.
